Special Collections:A large orchid garden shows thousands of Dendrobium and Vanda hybrid orchids with many different colours.
Many other orchid families are represented, including hundreds of Thai species.
These include several types of slipper orchids, Bulbophyllums, Cirrhopetalums, Rhynchostylis etc. plus the world's largest orchid species Grammatophyllum speciosum.
The garden also contains thousands of Bromeliad plants of over one hundred species and hybrids.
These plants are grown as much for their beautifully coloured and attractively shaped leaves as for their long-lasting exotic flowers.
Some of the flowers remain attractive for three to six months, others last just one day.
